Robcad does not have a student free version, however RobotExpert does have. Simply google for "RobotExpert Trial" and follow the instructions. there is a new version for download (v12.1.1). RobotExpert is also a Tecnomatix (Siemens) robotic simulation product with more or less the same capabilities as Robcad. Maybe this will be also accepted by the university. Out of Curiosity, which university requests students to work with Robcad?
